Raat by Atif Aslam – the music video
The music video is completely star-studded, in a nine-minute video Mansha Pasha, Syra, Kiran Malik, and Gohar Rasheed dazzled the audience and walked us through the journey of Atif Aslam as an artist.
The storyline shows that Atif Aslam [called Asif Aslam at first] introducing himself as a struggling artist in the first scene-setting [dimension 1]. Then in the second scene sequence, he’s been seen with Syra as a super-star, as they share a romantic moment, donning a gorgeous suit, with the melody of ‘Atif Aslam’ himself, they get cut by a director showing how famous they are as actors as they both throw their tantrums! While in the third scene sequence, we see the star [Aslam] arguing with Mansha Pasha [presumably his wife]. They two fought while the child in the back listens… the argument then cause an accident.
In the final scene, the artist was seen walking down an alley quiet and broken where he saw Gohar Rasheed [a mugger] and while his attempt to mug Atif, he shots him and with a failed attempt the artist loses his life, alone and in dark.
The soft vocals, strong lyrics, and captivating cinematography make the whole song a perfect one. The video is directed by Umair Jaswal.
Raat by Atif Aslam – Lyrics
“Raat Mere Sath Guzarna
Ghumu Toh Ghumna
Kirno Ko Chumna
Raat Mere Sath Thehrna
Neendon Mein Jaagna
Ho Raat Bhaari Na Hona
Ho Raat Khwaab Na Khona“
